Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 31 October 2071 at 00:07.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1833" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2071 after 2 days on 7 November 2071 at 18:47.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 888 of Meeus index or 1841 from Brown series.
Length of current 888 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 10 minutes. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 889 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 26 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 37 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠67.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠102.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
5 days after point of apogee on 30 October 2071 at 19:30 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 November 2071 at 01:07 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 390 958 km (242 930 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 535 km (228 997 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 4 November 2071 at 02:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 November 2071 at 01:15 in ♍ Virgo.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 27 October 2071 at 22:38 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.256°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.336° in the next northern standstill on 11 November 2071 at 00:34 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 7 November 2071 at 18:47 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
